Things to do for February 10, 2011
Too Much Burlesque, Sword Swallowing and the '80s
The weekend is unattached.
Spoiler alert: you’ve got a few burlesque-related scenarios coming your way this weekend. But first up—a traveling burlesque/vaudeville/sideshow where appearances from a sword-swallowing temptress named Heather Holliday and the occasional “Midget of Mischief” are far from out of the question. Ah, romance.
Whether Saint Valentine has your full support or not, you have to admit, the guy throws a decent party. So when a routine night of French-themed cocktailing on the Westside gets commandeered by a French-themed burlesque troupe, it’s probably best to just go with it. Not that you wouldn’t.
Of course, you could always voice your anti-V-Day sentiments in a more... blatant way. And to that end, head to the Bitter Ball at Gold Room—a singles-only soiree involving the usual flock of girls dancing on tables, but with the added benefit of more champagne abuse, Dames Aflame girls... and girls dancing on tables.
Lion Dancing and Mystery Menus
Sadly, Chinese New Year is almost over. We know. But to usher it out in style, Peter Chang requests the honor of your presence at his new Hooch-side spot for some Chinese lion dancing. Oh, he’ll also be cooking... although you won’t know what until you get there. It’s okay, he probably doesn’t know either.
Tight-Rolled Jeans and Teresa Palmer
The ’80s throwback party. A bit overplayed: yes. Fully acceptable when Teresa Palmer is involved: very much yes. Oh, and if you don’t know who that is yet... trust us, you will. Head to Whiskey Park for an ’80s-themed bash with the stars of the new movie Take Me Home Tonight. Eddie Money salutes you.
